NEW-SHERIFFfor-video2

Slurs, whether you mean the impaired speech of drug addled barflies, or just abusive language and colorful insults, nobody does it better than the whiskey breathing, three headed monster that is Foul Mouth Jerk, Tame One and TopR. The lead single off the Jerk’s upcoming sixth full length, “Death By Misadventure” is classic, grimy, B-Boy funk spit from three veterans in the game. A razor sharp scratch montage by European DMC champion DJ Grazzhoppa on the hook, brings it all together over a beat by Reef Ali that’s more menacing than Godzilla’s dick. Album available 4/20/15… Tell a friend, tell a foe, tell everybody you know.

Feast Your Gaze…

misad front color my fix

Last week I read an article about how Flo Rida associate, Rich Homie Quan was barred from entering the VIP at an exclusive Miami night club. His response was to shout “But I’m a rich millionaire!”, knock out the bouncer, run across the street and escape in a speed boat.
Well, Foul Mouth Jerk is broke, but he appreciates new and creative ways to do opulent and excessive shit. He spends time pioneering such methods. Did he motorboat your mom’s tits with a mouthful of cheese ravioli? He doesn’t remember that, but it sounds like something he’d do. Did he get a master artist like Gus Cutty to render predictions on the conditions of his demise, and then use that as an album cover? Yes, he certainly did. Is there a level of Tupacishness in such a gesture? We’ll let you be the judge of that.
The new album Death By Misadventure will be available on iTunes, bandcamp.com and most online distributors Monday, 4/20/15. The official release party in Saturday 4/18 at The Isis Music Hall, in Asheville, NC. So in honor of that, above is the sneak preview of the album cover. Special thanks to Gus Cutty.

For those of you not up on Luke Sick, check his credentials:  Sacred Hoop, Grand Invincible, Yole Boys, Rime Force Most Illin.  The mean-spirited and gruff voiced rapper brings to mind Rakim smoking a pack a day, or Fredo Starr gaining 100 pounds from eating all his meals at the County Fair.Similarly slept-on producer Brycon has been making slaps on the under since the late 90s as member of heralded groups GFE, Brycon & Equal and Simple Mathematics.  His production credits include Action Bronson, Murs/Living Legends, Masta Ace and many more.  Somewhere between RZA and DJ Premier exists the sound that is still distinctly Brycon.  Oh and he smokes a lot of weed.  Even a little hash.

Their debut album “Year Of The Tre Bag” (MegaKut) is 14 tracks worth of grimy Bay Area gutter sniping.  Produced entirely by Brycon and held down by Luke Sick with appearances by Foulmouth Jerk and Lightbulb.  Videos for the first and second official singles “Driftin Drifter” and “You’re The Bad One” are on the way.

You can download the first official single “Driftin Drifter”, stream the full length album, and purchase “Year Of The Tre Bag” at the links above.

On a trip to Ecuador to see the legendary Bad Samta, Gurp-voyager and self-proclaimed “curse of the GFE” Brycon came home with an armload of records and a sleep-addled brain.  A short few days later the pudgy and curmudgeonly producer emerged from his San Francisco lab with this:

 

Brycon “ECU”

 

24 Minutes of Instrumentals inspired by a recent dig in Quito Ecuador

 

Now available in digital form at   http://brycon.bandcamp.com/album/ecu

and in physical form directly from Brycon   (bryconmusic@gmail.com) for the handsome price of $8.00 american.

 

Look for Brycon & Luke Sick’s new group Grand Killa Con as they schmob through NC and TN this month on the Cinderblocks & Cyanide tour, culminating in a performance at the 2013 Gurpfest in Asheville NC.  Their debut album “Year Of The Tre Bag” drops late this summer but you can score an advance copy direct from GKC on tour.

The Saga of the Tre Bag Continues…

facebooktwittergoogle_plusfacebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

You know what seems to be happening a lot in recent years? Super Groups. Conversely you know what seems to be lost to the annals of history? Rapper/Producer albums. Not the Kanye West “a producer that raps” type, I mean one consistent, cohesive musical vision throughout an entire album done by 1 MC and his DJ/Producer or production team. Up until about 1993 it’s pretty much how all rap albums were made, these days not so much. Well you know who’s combining these two seemingly dynamically opposed concepts? No, you probably don’t because you don’t stay up on ill shit the way I do. But the answer is Grand Killa Con, a joint effort from Gurp City All Star Luke Sick, the lyricist behind projects like Sacred Hoop & Grand Invincible, and Brycon a producer whose worked with everyone from Action Bronson to Masta Ace.
As a super group I’m gonna go ahead & rate them firmly right between The Hot Boys & The Traveling Wilburys. As a rapper/producer combo, I would put them somewhere in the neighborhood of a Marley Marl & Kane. Their first leak  “Hemmed pt.1″ is the beginning of their run up to this summer’s release of their full-length “Year of the Tre Bag” and is accompanied by a video that’s as grimy as the album title suggests.

In Vino Veritas

facebooktwittergoogle_plusfacebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

The Germans have a saying; “In beer there is strength. In wine there is wizdom. In water there is only bacteria.” Apparently, Free Radio has found something else in their drinks. I’m not sure, but judging from the verses, it may be the brain enhancing drug from that Bradley Cooper film “Limitless”. While the rest of the rap game continues to insist that intelligence is no longer en vogue and seem hellbent on competing in a death race to the bottom, Free Radio has some genuinely worthwhile shit to say. And quite frankly, some pretty compelling imagery to go with it, which is brought to you by Andrew Anderson. “Something in the Water” is the second video from their latest album “Powers That Be”. Hopefully it’s not the last, because these dudes are moving in a different direction than most and I’d like to see where it goes from here. My prediction; they begin writing fotune cookie messages, make a killing in the Chinese dessert business and leave the rap game behind, mere moments before Rick Ross & the EDM rap craze collide in a heinous implosion of molly, backfat, skinny jeans and shitty sex puns.

Trunk Drank- Loud Music

In the immortal words of Brandon B “Rap is officially a grown man’s sport, so if your music ain’t knockin step the fuck down…”.  And if that doesnt put it to you frankly enough, then allow me to refer you to the album title “Loud Music In the Parking Lot”.  A-fucking-men. Succinctly put gentlemen. Trust & believe Trunk Drank does one thing, hord ass beats for wild ass porites, brought to you  by two esteemed elder statesman of  Gurp City with more stripes than zebra orgy. Two things you can rely on; Brandon B’s hair got more salt & peppa than the “Push It” video & this will be knockinest album you hear all year… Grown Man Shit.

The Thinking Man’s Nicholas Cage

facebooktwittergoogle_plusfacebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

Okay the holiday vacation is over & much to my disappoinment the world didn’t end on 12/21/12, leaving Kevin Costner to lead the survivors to post-apocalyoptic redemption. What did happen is the Fist Fam realeased their latest single & 1st self produced/directed/edited video.

“White Picket Fences” is  the final track in the line up of their recently released album “Weekend Cult,” the song pays tribute to the group’s sacrifices over the last decade spent making quality rap music. Contrary to popular belief, there are no white picket fences for psychotic, psychedelic, shit talking rap megalomaniacs. Although the group has received many honors, garnered regional fame, and partied like Nicholas Cage in Leaving Las Vegas, it all comes at a cost. Listen closely and you can hear the groups philosophy subtly stated on the outro, “If it were easy then everybody would do it.” Many have tried, and many have failed, left to limp home with shattered livers and broken dreams.  Not the Fist Fam. This tenacious group of misanthropes has been tearing clubs up across the country, leaving a wake of destruction in their path since the turn of the millennium. After spending the last six years in the alcoholic neverland known as San Francisco, the group has moved back to Asheville NC to recharge their damaged livers, chop some wood to fuel the flames of the oil lamp hash, and try the simple life for a while. Join them in spirit, with spirits. Sit back, pour a glass of the hard stuff,and enjoy.

Whiskey Drinkers & Chicken Shits

facebooktwittergoogle_plusfacebooktwittergoogle_plusby feather

The official motto of Gurp City South is “Eat Swine, Drink Shine Everyday”. But perhaps the unofficial motto should be “Whiskey & Wings”, because perhaps the only thing that tops our heroic consumtion of the tarantula juice is the frequency with which the crew convenes to competitively cook & eat enough spicy bird to declare a fowlacaust. What I’m saying quite franlkly is that not only will GCS drink you under the table, we are guarding enough secret recipes that I am confident we will dominate any other rap crew out there in a hot wing cook-off (with the possible exception of El Da Sensei, who cooked the wings in the above art for the single & is a Top Gun level wing man.)

This week’s free single is sort of a dedication to that lifestyle, hence the name “Hot Sauce”. It’s the 1st release off the upcoming collaborative EP by Foul Mouth Jerk & Gus Cutty titled Scofflaw which is entirely produced by Grand Invicible’s DJ Eons. The EP, perhaps not coincidentally, was recorded entirely over a 2 day period during Thanksgiving weekend in San Francisco, fueled by a steady intake of leftover baked ham sandwhiches & tallboys.  All of which may pave the way for Gurp City’s motto for 2013 “Food, Booze & Shroomz”. Buckle up
